The match was hard fought and even, right up until near the end where we got a few kills that weren't trades, I had just helped finish off a battleship and a cruiser threatening our base and they only had a battleship and a carrier left. We had a pretty decent idea where the battleship was, and just needed to go find him, but where was the carrier?

.... Then suddenly our siren started going off.

How he managed to get in there without anyone spotting is anyone's guess, but, he managed.

See, this is how you make an impression.

A very brave captain. Maybe he was praying to RNG for 4-5 CQE detonations for the win!

A full concealment build on the Independence gives it an 8.4km detection range, so that could be how he managed to get there undetected.  Still, that's a very gutsy move.  Well done to him (or possibly her).

See my position and note the ship I'm driving. He died before I got a shot off on him around the island.

Not the point, though. His loss was already certain. Live or die does not affect repair cost. He decided to make that loss interesting.

Judging on his and your positions, he came down the middle on the east of that little island at F5 before heading west and turning back east into the cap, without being noticed. Or he started behind the island at E4, with only pure coincidence keeping him unspotted from that DD,, and headed south before turning East into the cap, I don’t know which is more likely though.

Although I would have to ask him to be sure. 

EDIT: like this

Lol I was the red BB that was left on red team that battle. I had crushed the one flank in my Nelson which took a while since as you can see there was a few ships that needed to die, including a Bismarck and my team had melted. By the time I finished with that and was heading full speed to aid the CV who had surprisingly went into enemy base. It was too late to save him.

Have to admire that CV though, he likes playing his CV highly agressively same as me. I often get a good laugh out of enemy ships searching my team’s side of the map for me, and I am usually on the red side of the map instead.... :Smile_teethhappy:

Yeah well, we had to go find you. Should've driven something faster than that floating brick you call a ship. :Smile-_tongue:

Hmm next time you try to face me in that Hood of yours, maybe I will use my Bismarck instead of Nelson... :Smile_teethhappy:

Have to say though Nelson has proved far more durable than commonly thought. You guys were only ones able to kill me in the ship so far. :Smile_honoring:

That heal is something else, yeah. If you can angle against incoming fire, Nelson is a real tough ship to take out.

The CV had the chance to get there since some of my team drew Lert’s team into the cluster of small islands, and other half of Lerts team was engaging my Nelson as well as a handful of my team mates in the 3 large islands and between those islands and white line the fighting was intense and Lert’s team had to keep sending reinforcements there which tied me up unfortunately.

Still bold move for the Independence though, I usually pull those kind of stunts in IJN CVs like Ryujo which have the Concealment to more easily sneak around.
